My M.O.M. Logic

There’s Mom logic? Are you kidding? I think most Moms operate on prayer, faith and good luck. But this question begs another question; where did anyone get the idea that there was some sort of logical process to being a mother? As I thought of this question, I realized as a Mom I have certain abilities that elude my husband. Aside from the awesome power of incubating life, giving birth after hours of pushing and still having the strength to hold the baby and do a cool imitation of Bessie the cow, women in general multitask on the order of a super computer. We are mothers, doctors, chefs, chauffeurs, managers, CFOs, CEOs, maids, therapists and if you are in a relationship you need to be a best friend and sex kitten. So how do we do it?

Product nuisance

As we sit here trying to write while our 2 year old screeches ‘Mine, mine, mine!!!’ over and over again, it’s harder than you can imagine writing about kids and parenting without having thoughts of abuse or cardboard boxes with small air-holes. Lately, the job of daily writing has been doubly hard due to the added nuisance of having 2 young boys wedged firmly up our asses at all times. And, since they were both recently ill, their sleep schedules are all messed up so we can’t even be assuaged by the promise of peace at a certain time of the day. In a corporation, what are the principles to do when your products are interfering with the healthy functioning of the entity?

Our business is love…and business is good.

Good Morning CoupleDumb readers! We hope your weekend was restful and you are ready for an exciting week. We were all ready to do a week talking about sex and then had to change our plans when Lee was nominated as the Mother of all Bloggers on Momlogic.com. On Wednesday morning, instead of a Celebrity Smackdown, we will have Lee’s post for the contest ‘What’s your Mom Logic?’. So we’re shaking up the week people! We won’t lose the opportunity on using this shake up to point something out; you need to be flexible and defer to the greater good of the relationship if you want to succeed.

Jingoism and other cool words I’m attached to.

One of our faithful readers wrote us last week and asked these very insightful questions: ‘Hi guys! I understand that there is only so much you can address in a few paragraphs, but I hope you expand on the topic of attachments. As of now, it is hard for me to imagine anyone completely free of attachments, and see our capacity to form attachments as necessary for our survival. So I will play Darwin’s advocate with the following questions:

Dreams do come true but sometimes they look funny.

We’ve been writing about dreams all week and here we are on our favorite day of the week, Thursday. This day is devoted to the core relationship. We don’t care if your dating, living together, married, in domestic partnership or unwilling to define or label your love. We are talking about two people relating. So put on your sun dress and kick off your shoes to run through the metaphorical meadows of dreams with us.

Some actor guy that we can not mention is an asshole.

We all have dreams. Some people have dreams of being successful and rich. Some others would forego all of that to be able to express themselves artistically. Musicians, painters, writers and performers have been known to live in squalor to be able to practice their craft. Then you get Hollywood douche bags like Billy Bob Thornton to come and dash the dreams and hopes of some impressive musicians because he thinks he’s Tom Petty. Canada kicked you out and now be prepared to get the Smackdown from CoupleDumb!

We’re sending Ricky to Japan.

When it comes to instilling dreams in our children, it seems like a no-brainer. Every parent wants their child to have fantasies of a greater future full of excitement, love and joy. Even crack moms, with a pipe in one hand and a baby in the other, tell their children how great they can become. But to what end? Why do we fill our kid’s minds with fantasies that, statistically speaking, will never come true? Whose dreams are we giving them?

Dream big, sell the moon

Good Monday Readers! We hope this past weekend, where many celebrate their faith, was filled with love and family. We would like to thank you for the opportunity to share our experiences last week. Having a soapbox like a blog makes it pretty easy to blast every jerk in the universe. Like Spiderman says, ‘With great power there’s great responsibility’. We promise to use this power sparingly unless we really want to hurt somebody. We kid! But it’s nice to dream about it.
